Alongside his work as a soloist and conductor, Maurice Steger also serves as a lecturer. He regularly holds master classes with promising new recorder players, whether at music universities or in special master courses for recorder and early music. The teaching of technical and musical knowledge and working with talented young people inspires Maurice Steger as much as his own concerts.
Guest professorships, workshops and master classes regularly lead Steger to the universities of Taipei, Zurich, London, Colorado, Nuremberg, New York, Montreal and Salzburg, as well as to annual master courses such as Arosa, Accademia del Ricercare and Gstaad.
His comprehensive educational project, “Tino Flautino – musical stories for children”, is also very dear to his heart. Instilling a love of music in very young listeners is another important task for the artist. In Switzerland and its neighbouring countries, countless numbers of children have already experienced the exciting tales of Tino Flautino. Steger’s most recent projects in the sphere of child and youth education are Pinocchio and the Recorder Player and Le fou des flûtes.
Maurice Steger serves on the jury of numerous competitions, and has published countless magazines for young musicians.
Since 2013, he has served as the Director of the Gstaad Baroque Academy, where he has the wonderful opportunity to give master classes to the world’s most talented players. Many of Steger’s students have been attending for many years, and are among the most important performers of the young generation..
